AEROGRAMMES - OFFICIAL: 1952 'ON HIS MAJESTY'S SERVICE' with 'POSTAGE/PAID' at upper-right ASC #OA4, to New Zealand with Melbourne machine cancel of 18SEP/1953. Rare. [The ASC gives 18/9/1953 as the issue date for the 'Postage/Paid' issue #OA3. We expect this is also thus a First Day Cover, which suggests that the upper-case setting may have been just one unit on the sheet, rather than a separate issue.

He makes no mention of unoverprinted stamps being used in that period. At p133 he states that "stragglers" of unoverprinted stamps were used as late as January 1947. This usage is 9 months later]

JAPANESE OCCUPATION: c.1944 Japanese Navy (anchor at lower-left & photo of battleships within) airmail lettersheet to Japan. Rare. [Better quality than the similar item illustrated by Bob Stein in the SAS/Oceania "Informer" of July 2009. The airfield was built by the Japanese - and bombed by the Americans - but very few airmail items are recorded. The sender's address has been translated as U68 U66 Yokosuka Postal Station = Nauru]
